Ascension School has an Extended Day Program for registered students. This program operates all day from 7 AM to 6 PM on all open school days. A non-refundable registration fee is paid at the time of school registration. Please see the Extended Day Handbook for further information.
Approximately sixty Ascension students finish their school day at 3:00 and then move down the hall to join their Extended Day Program friends for a snack, group sharing time, homework and some fun.
Our large room is set up with various centers to encourage respectful play and engage the children in age appropriate and stimulating activities. Our staff is well educated and professional, with a genuine respect for the children.
The Extended Day Program program offers many opportunities for our students. We run 2 separate homework programs, one for grades 1 & 2, the other for 3rd-8th grade.
Arts and Crafts projects are ongoing, as are an endless number of games, puzzles, manipulatives, dramatic play items, books, and special seasonal projects. The fun is evident daily in the faces of the children and staff.
You can get a glimpse of what the preschool students do during school hours (8am-3pm) while they are enrolled in Extended Day in the Daytime Gallery.
You can to view what goes on before and after school in the AM-PM Gallery.
To register your child or for any other questions, please e-mail or call our Extended Day Director Theresa Burns at 708-434-1529.
